Doctor of Business Administration - DBA
@ Academy of International Business - AIB

This course is available to study as an Online Course.

A Doctorate of Business Administration is a widely recognised professional doctorate degree in Business and Management. It is normally the highest level of qualification available in these fields. The Doctorate of Business Administration program is designed to provide managers and leaders with a global perspective which emphasizes the use of both practical and theoretical approaches. The Core, Concentration, and Dissertation course syllabi are organised around this goal. The successful completion of class projects and assignments requires research skills and the discovery of new knowledge as students search for solutions to problems in today's ever-changing environment.

A DBA is an applied doctoral degree and graduates work in academia, corporations, not-for-profits, and consulting agencies upon graduation. Accordingly, the program ensures comprehensive coverage of the body of knowledge and skills needed for graduates to perform successfully in academia as well as corporations and other organisations. Our DBA curriculum is a focused, rigorous program with a business and management emphasis as well as a research orientation. Students must demonstrate an ability to work independently with initiative and diligence to design and implement an empirically grounded and theoretically significant contribution to their field. This is accomplished under the mentorship and supervision of a Doctoral Chair and Committee.
